The March 21st snow storm which cancelled school will be made up through an Act 80 Day on June 8th, meaning the students' last day of school will remain at Thursday, June 7th. An Act 80 Day allows schools to count hours, as opposed to days, in order to determine if they are meeting State requirements for instructional time. The Secretary of Education has the authority to grant schools an exception to the "180-day requirement" provided they are meeting the school year "instructional hour requirement" of 900 hours for full-time kindergarten and elementary, and 990 hours for secondary. Southern Columbia exceeds both requirements.The June 8th Act 80 Day will be used to provide the District's staff with Safe Schools training. A revised calendar is found at this link.
The June 8th Act 80 Day will feature joint training involving SCA's staff and the local police departments serving the communities of the District. Pictured with Senior Class President Eli Yemzow (center) are School Police Officer Clay Fahringer, Locust Township Officer Paul Hilliard, Locust Township Chief Allen Breach, Catawissa Borough Officer Jason Hayes, and Ralpho Township Officer Bryon Chowka.
